|3 Ways to Get More Out of a College Visit
Written by: Annie Reznik
A recent college tour left me feeling frustrated. Every college sounded exactly the same.
Tour guide, school A: "We have tons of clubs! And, if we don't have what you're looking for, start your own!"
Tour guide, school B: "I'm not sure if we have the club, but you should start it! Students start clubs all the time, here."
Tour guide, school C: "We have over 500 clubs and organizations for student involvement, and if you can't find something interesting to join, start your own club!"
All three tour guides exhibited ample, ubiquitous enthusiasm.
In an attempt to convey a broad message that appeals to everyone, colleges appeal to no one in particular. Counselors encourage students to know themselves and find a school that matches individual aims and ambitions. But, colleges often do a poor job offering a distinct message.
If you're searching for distinction, follow these tips for getting the most from a college visit:
1. Ask specific questions.
2. Visit a class.
3. Spend time on campus off the tour route.
